14 November 2016 Thermal sensing performance of the nested fiber ring resonator
Author Affiliations +
We compare the temperature sensitivity between the nested fiber ring resonator (NFRR) and the nested fiber ring resonator coupled Mach-Zehnder interferometer (NFRRCMZI). Theoretical results indicate that the temperature sensitivity of the NFRR is almost twelve times higher than that of NFRRCMZI with same parameters, hence complex MZI system can be removed and the whole sensing system will be more compatible without sacrificing the sensitivity. Taking feedback waveguide part as the sensing element in NFRR structure, the limitation of optical quality factor on sensitivity will be broken and arbitrary sensitivity can be acquired by easily setting different feedback waveguide length.
